Personally I wouldn't have any major issue with a Friday wedding. I've been to a few and it's actually nice to have the rest of the weekend free afterwards. However I have flexible arrangements with work that wouldn't necessarily mean I'd have to take a day of annual leave to attend.
So do just bare in mind that you'll probably get less people being able to attend on a Friday compared to a Saturday. Not a ridiculous amount less I'd imagine (compared to say a foreign wedding), but if people get invited to multiple Friday/mid-week weddings in one year, they'll have to start picking and choosing which to attend due to limited annual leave.
However at least with a Friday wedding, some people might be able to attend the afters without taking time off work.

When did having a 2nd day/night become the norm? It seems to be in more recent years only. I hate hate hate when weddings become a two day event. One night is enough, I need to recharge afterwards and don't like feeling pressured to shell out for a second night of accommodation on top of everything else. You get one day... ONE
